Still pregnant and thankful

This is not my favorite kind of post to write.  The only reason I MUST is because it's one of those things....well, it's what my life has suddenly become about, so if I don't tell you, I have nothing at all to tell you.  Does that make sense?

Burdening people, sharing sorrow- it's doesn't come naturally to me.  I just like to make people's lives better, you know?  But here goes.

Today, I am thankful to still be pregnant.  If I am still pregnant tomorrow, I will be even more thankful still.

Theme Thursday- Self Portrait

I actually planned this one in advance. I was going to do, like, my reflection in some sunglasses so it would be mostly a photo of sunglasses and not really a photo of me.  Like....I would be an afterthought.  Then I saw Cari's post and was like "hmmmmm, I'm probably not actually supposed to be an afterthought in this particular instance.

And so I got super brave and didn't put on any make up or fix my hair and I even made the bright sun shine right into my eyes so I would have to squint.

A Tale of Two Vacuums

Well, I've finally become that woman.  The woman I never thought I could become.  Oh, you know the woman I'm talking about.  The woman who says things like, and I am not even joking, "...which would make dusting the moulding SO much easier!"

Too many pictures. You're welcome. (7qt)

Ugh!  Cari!  In her effort to not get scooped, she totally scooped me on the world's most incredible invention that you guys probably already know about but I'm always late to the party, okay?  Okay.


If you are not playing this game yet, ehrmagherd, brace yourself for wonderous wonderment.

Y'all seriously- having chickens is the best.  Yes, last spring we had a raccoon issue and someone (read: children) has to take care of them a.m. and p.m.  But it is SO easy and the results are tangible and plentiful and ohmygoodness I love having chickens.  Of course, as with any hobby, you can go berzerk and spend a bunch of money on a fancy coop and get stressed out about....I don't even know.  I'm sure you can find a ton of things to get stressed out about on chicken forums (yes, there is such a thing), but dude- it's a chicken.  It's just a chicken!   No worries.

A bad attitude and a dinner story

(If you're just here for the food, scroll right on down past this rambling...)

The Saturday before Mother's Day, I was a raging jerk.  For no reason.  Did a lot of stomping around the house, never had a concrete thing to complain about (because if I did then the problem could be fixed.  I didn't want the problem to be fixed.  I wanted to be MAD), and just in general was a pretty insufferable human.

In the garden. Out of the garden.

Have you heard the one about the guy that spent his entire Saturday working in the yard, spreading compost, digging garden beds, mowing lawns and transplanting seedlings?  And then finished off the day by making an incredible, amazing, fantastic crazy-gourmet dinner for 10 people?  It's a good one.

Brain dump, sort of a confession + baby update

I feel like being pregnant turns me into a honey badger (link not safe for kids.  Or people who don't like swearing.  Like really.  But man it makes me laugh....).  Or MORE of a honey badger.  Or something.  I can't post anything or write anything because all I can think is "Ugh!  That article made me so mad!  What an unabridged douche canoe that dude is!" (I used that exact phrase, "unabridged douche canoe," on facebook the other day and it was a huge hit, so I'm feeling know...if it ain't broke, no repairs necessary and all that.  Okay fine, along with being honey badger, my brain is made of cheesecloth.  Total inability to think of new material.)

Living Room, Spring, Ernie... (7QT)

As foreshadowed in Monday's post, the crappiness has continued this week with a four day lull between my visits to ye olde blog.  Mea culpa!

Did you know it got spring up in this piece?  It totally did!  Mr. Camera came with me outside on Wednesday morning (because God is being so so so so merciful to me with this pregnancy that the 2nd trimester is actually.....wait for it....bringing some relief from the barfy sleepiness.  Can you believe it?  I thought that thing was a total lie!) and I snagged a couple of shots of what's going on in the yards:

Why I've been such a crappy blogger

Right now I'm eating raw asparagus spears dipped in spicy Asian garlic sauce (like Sriracha but comes in a jar with a green lid.  Has pepper flakes in it).

Last week I went to an actual doctor's office for the first time in....over three years.

The week before that, I called my husband at work in a hysterical frenzy, sobbing into the phone.  He had to come home, I said.  He had to come home right now.

Videos, ranting, and book rec (7QT)

The other day my husband dropped an enormous truth-bomb on me as I was standing, all unsuspecting-like in the kitchen.  Are you ready?  

I have a weird sense of humor.

Whaaaaa.......?  14 years together and he just NOW tells me this?  ApparentLY (you have to say it like that, with the emphasis on the LY)

Kuntry-rific Play

Because I am a slacking procrastinator (there's nothing as productive as the last minute, friends) I never plan ahead for the Theme Thursday posts.  This is probably why it's also good that I don't host my own regular link-up or anything.  I'd be all "Oh, was that today?  Think anyone will notice?"  Honest.  So lame.

Anyway.  Thankfully the theme today is "play" so I walked outside and decided to take a picture of the first kid I saw.

Well, the first kid I saw was just sitting in a chair eating an apple and since this is my game and I do what I want, I CHANGED the rule
